If you’re keen to experience the benefits of using a facial serum but are unsure of how to get started, continue reading to discover a guide to incorporating facial serums into your everyday beauty routine.
How to use a facial serum in your everyday beauty routine:
1. Make sure to apply your facial serum after cleansing and toning your face
After you’ve cleansed your face and used a toner, add a few drops of facial serum on your face. Make sure to gently and carefully massage your facial serum into your forehead, cheeks, jaw and chin.
If you’re looking to prevent fine lines, under eye bags and wrinkles, also make sure to gently use a sponge to dab a bit of facial serum under your eyes. Making sure, of course, to avoid getting facial serum too close to your eyes.
2. Apply your facial serum at night after you’ve washed your face
Before you head to bed, wash your face as per usual before applying a few more drops of facial serum to your face. Again ensure that you massage all of your facial serum into your skin, so that your skin can get all the benefits that facial serums have to offer. Such as hydration.
Next, grab your favourite night time moisturizer and apply it onto your face. To achieve optimal results, always make sure to apply your facial serum first, as facial serums are absorbed deeper into your skin than moisturisers which are only adsorbed onto the top layers of your skin.
3. Make sure that you apply your facial serum to your face twice a day
While you may assume that you’re only meant to apply a face serum to your skin once a day, in order to reap all the benefits which the best face serums have to offer, you should aim to apply it to your face both in the morning and at night as directed above.
The reason why you should apply facial serum twice a day, is that when you apply your facial serum in the morning, you’ll give your skin 12 hours to absorb its benefits such as hydration. On the other hand, when you apply your facial serum at night, your serum will be absorbed into your skin as you sleep.
4. You can apply facial serum under a sunscreen
If you wear sunscreen on a daily basis in order to protect your skin, make sure to apply your facial serum before you apply your sunscreen, in order to achieve the best possible results.
5. Only apply a pea sized amount of facial serum to the largest parts of your face
Instead of using multiple drops of serum on each cheek and your forehead, make sure to use just a pea sized amount of facial serum to your face.
6. Never wash your facial serum off
Don’t make the mistake of washing your facial serum off as there’s no need to wash your face after applying facial serum.
So if you’re interested in experiencing the many benefits associated with using a facial serum, make sure to use the guide above, to your advantage!
